CHEERING MAKES THE MILES GO BY

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

 

Hello,
We are a group of Oak Bay High leadership students who volunteered for the Victoria Women’s transition house at the marathon on Sunday, October 9th. We helped out at the cheer station on Dallas Road. There were so many dedicated volunteers, at the cheer station, we had one person with a megaphone, encouraging the runners and walkers with pom-poms and posters. We felt that the runner and walkers were encouraged by our cheering. We noticed that because of our cheering, the runners and walkers were having a more enjoyable time. Thank you to the Victoria Women’s Transition House for letting us be a part of this experience.
